That was the reason I started this blog in the first place, even though I know that I haven’t had a drink of booze since last week when I said I’m not drinking until the end of the Tough Mudder, how would you know that? Well I’m not about to put a Lindsay Lohan style Scram bracelet on my ankle to prove it, so you’ll just have to trust me on that one.
I started thinking about ways I can use the blog to actually help me out with staying on task until this mud race is over. Now that I’m feeling better from having strep throat and a gout flare-up all over the same 4 day period, it’s time to start exercising again. I’m still slightly limping from the crystalized uric acid in my stupid, stupid ankle, so I can’t really run around so much. I’ll be going swimming tomorrow through Thursday of this week to kick off the exercise portion of this horrible idea.
I’m going to shoot for 30 minutes per day.
I know that’s not going to make me a superhero, wait, is there a guy called, “Severely-winded-by-warming-up Man”? No? Ok.
I know that’s not going to make me a superhero, but it’s a start.
It’s definitely not going to make me this guy:
Once again, I know it’s a long road, but this is how it starts, right?
I’m also going to start posting two other pictures every night. One of my feet on the scale, and one of the dinner I cooked for myself. Accountability.
I just got on the scale tonight:
That’s a nice fat place to start.
So you scale and/or feet junkies are in for a friggin TREAT from here on out.
That makes sense, yeah, let’s do that.
I feel better just being down 9 pounds from last week, thanks illness!
Have a great week everyone!
